Pretty Floral Dresses That Camouflage The Midsection

Spring is here and that means it's dress season. We've found the prettiest floral dresses full of color, made for everyday wear, and—most of all—comfortable.
Six to Sunday

There’s no denying the easy one-and-doneness of a dress, and in the warmer months, it becomes a particularly no-brainer outfit option because you don’t have to fret about tights or the ensuing shoe conundrum.

As nature’s thermostat creeps up, it’s time to let the legs out!

We’d like to make the case for a floral dress—it’s pretty and feminine—in a style that suits your body and in a fabric that’s wearable. We’re talking dresses made of cotton that you can throw on with sneakers or ballet flats, wear during the day, and toss in the washing machine afterward.

We found floral dresses that are as comfortable and, yes, as wearable as a pair of jeans.

Midi Floral Dresses

ASOS. The small-scale black and white pattern flatters and minimizes (delicate prints can do that), and the high-low hemline adds a floaty feel. The V-neck visually slims shoulders and boobs while accentuating curves.

ASOS Curve Hi-Low Hem Midi Dress

Anthropologie - Maeve. This dress has a forgiving shape, but when done in a cotton poplin (for a bit of structural integrity) and in a wowza print, you will avoid looking like the “f” word (yes, we’re talking about frumpy). Lunching, erranding, or tossing over a bathing suit, this pick is for you.

Maeve The Bettina Tiered Shirt Dress

Boden. There’s something undeniably uplifting about a vibrant, red print, but it’s the easy-to-wear silhouette that makes this dress so effortless. It features a functional front tie (to cinch as you need), and side pockets, and it’s made from 100% linen so it will get softer as you wear it. And you will wear it, all summer long. Available in petite and standard sizes.

Boden Tie Front Midi Dress

Daige. If you like your florals with a bit of sophistication, we point you to this stunner. The color scheme is unusual (and elevated), and the Kimono-style shape screams luxe design. You’ll also get flexibility with the fit—the waist tie can be left loose or tightened to accommodate however you like to wear your clothing.

Daige Siren Kimono Dress

The Somerset Collection by Anthropologie. When nearly 500 women review a dress and it still has over 4 stars, we know there’s something to it. Designed in seven colors and in standard, petite, and plus sizing, with a shape that’s to die for, what is not to love?!

Anthropologie The Somerset Maxi Dress

Farm Rio. All this fanciful print needs is a beautiful view and an Aperol Spritz! The smocked waist and deep V neckline whittle the middle and the flutter sleeves highlight toned arms.

Farm Rio Summer Garden Cotton Maxi Dress

Sea. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, single shoulder looks have that effortless elegance and feminine appeal that we can’t get enough of. Yes, this piece is pricey, but goodness does it make up for it in detail—smocked (read: forgiving) bodice, a gorgeous floral print, and subtle, sophisticated pleating. Wear this when you want to look like a knockout but understated and 100% comfortable.

Mini (But Not Too Mini) Floral Dresses

Ro’s Garden. Ro’s Garden wins again with this stunning blueprint and breezy cotton silhouette. We love the long sleeves and slightly longer back hem for just that extra balance (and coverage) with this mini dress. Pair with sandals or white sneakers. This one is a win.

Ro’s Garden Deauville Dress

Guadalupe Design. A Six to Sunday owned design, Guadalupe features the softest, lightest summer-ready fabrics due to its South American heritage and manufacturing. You know by now that we love anything resembling a wrap style for how universally flattering it is, and this length is just right.
